Fish Drive Robot Bowls

Another work by Ken Rinaldo called Augmented Fish Reality.
He gives control of robot fish bowls to the Siamese Fighting fish inside them. The fish can see what is going on outside their bowl and drive over to get a better look by swimming to one side of the bowl or the other.
The fish bowls have video cameras under them and a 'fish eyes' view is projected on the wall.

Ken is allowing the fish control of the robots to help in trans-species communication. The fish are given the tools to expand their ability to interact with humans.

This was shown at Ars Electronica 2004.
